Simply eczema

Simply eczema

Singapore Medical Journal 54(5): 247-9; Quiz 250

Atopic eczema is a commonly encountered chronic skin condition in primary care. In this article, we share a holistic, structured approach, which is grounded on the chronic and atopic nature of the condition - planned reviews, patient empowerment, a written action plan for chronic and fare management, and trigger avoidance. Common pitfalls in management are insufficient emphases on scheduled reviews and patient empowerment, as well as neglect in the care of the loss of the epidermal barrier during acute flares.
